Hi, I’m Jodi and I’m the founder and principal naturopath here at Revital health.
I have over a decade of clinical experience, i’m the the CEO of HOMe/HOPe Australia, lecturer at Endeavour College of Natural Health, podcast host, and i’m completing my Masters in Human Nutrition. I specialise in Health Optimisation and Practice (HOMe/HOPe).
As a Functional Naturopath, I combine traditional forms of medicine with cutting edge scientific research to to detect and correct subtle deficiencies and toxicities to treat the underlying causes of disease. I love digging deep into people’s health, and I use a large range of functional and in-clinic testing to learn about my patients’ histories and genetic, environmental and lifestyle factors. We then work together to create a treatment plan to help them live with more clarity, energy and purpose; and maximise their long-term health. I create uniquely personalised compounded medicines when needed for each of my clients. I believe in offering personalised treatments to inform, educate, and empower my clients in health and life.
I grew up on a farm in Keysbrook (southeast of Perth) where my family rescued and rehabilitated sick and injured animals. My mum would treat them (and us!) with homeopathic and herbal medicines and ever since, I’ve been addicted to all things health! And a hopeless animal lover!
But my real health obsession began in 2008 when I had a personal wake-up call. I was living in London, studying Naturopathy full time and also working and partying full time (as you do when you’re 22!). I was anxious and highly stressed, drinking litres of coffee and taking stimulants to help me get through the day. I battled an eating disorder and suffered terrible gut and immune system issues.
Of course it wasn’t long before I crashed and burned. I had chronic adrenal fatigue and physically could not continue – my body had had enough. I started looking for ways to heal myself , and came across an ad for a raw food workshop. I thought, it couldn’t hurt to give it a try? Maybe it would help bring some vitality back to my life?
In a small home kitchen, we learned the basics of raw food preparation and made a number of fresh, tasty, plant-based dishes. But my turning point?
I tried the raw chocolate.
The feeling was incredible. It was like nothing I’d ever experienced in my life! I felt calm, relaxed, loving and vital. The power of real, nourishing, close-to-nature (and delicious) food gave me energy and focus that I couldn’t remember ever having before!
Converted, I started making plant based dishes and vital food all the time, for myself and my friends. But I didn’t stop there. With my newfound energy, I became obsessed with finding all the best ways I to maximise my health.
Life became so much easier to manage, and not only did I finish my Naturopathy degree while working the same full time job, I started another job, and a new business (making and selling raw chocolate!). I had my vitality back!
When I returned to Australia, I was determined to help other people experience the same shift. So in 2012, after the birth of my son, I opened Revital Health.
I also lecture at Endeavour College of Natural Medicine, and I’m currently completing a Masters in Human Nutrition. I am a 200 hour qualified yoga teacher but I’m always trying new things when it comes to exercise – I love to push my body, and take things to the next level when it comes to health and fitness!
The most important thing I learned from my burnout experience is that it only takes one small change to turn everything around. That one piece of chocolate wasn’t a miracle cure – but it was enough to produce a ripple effect. When I got sick, I was studying Naturopathy, so deep down I knew what I had to do. But it wasn’t until I actually did something and experienced a change that I realised the full potential of my health. Before that, I didn’t know what was possible!
Everybody deserves to know how it feels to live with the best possible health, and that’s why I am constantly looking for the newest and most effective ways to achieve it. I won’t settle for anything less for myself, my family or my patients.
Are you ready to find out what is possible for you? Get in touch here!
